Daily Review Coverage of School Board Area 2 Race

An article in the October 2, 2006, edition of the Daily Review focuses on the race for San Leandro School Board Area 2 between incumbent Pauline Cutter and challenger Vera Ayres. Cutter was first elected in 1988 and is running for her third term. Ayres says she decided to run because Cutter had no challenger. Ayres accuses the school district of wasteful spending, opposed Measure A, and is opposed to Measure B. Cutter said that her goals are to "create equity among the schools in the district; provide safe, clean and attractive facilities; and to make sure the struggling students as well as the honors students are given what they need to be successful."

At the end of the article, Ayres reportedly became defensive and angry when reporter Katy Murphy asked her about her children and Ayres said "BACK OFF with your attack dogs," she wrote. "You will absolutely NOT allow your stooge reporter ... to write that I was reluctant to initially reveal where my son went to school."

Let's hope that the voters are wise enough to re-elect Pauline Cutter on November 7, 2006.
